Tom Lüthi: "not easy to finish the race"
It was a difficult weekend for Tom Lüthi which saw the Swiss rider finish in 22nd position.
The 13th round of the MotoGP World Championship was held in ideal summer conditions at a sunny and warm World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. Tom Luthi was placed 25th in the warm-up and knew he a faced long, hot day in the 27 lap race. From 23rd on the grid Luthi quickly realised a pre-race set-up change did not solve his turning issues. By lap eight he had moved forward to 22nd where he finished after a challenging weekend at Misano.
Tom Luthi: 22nd, +1’12.608
The race was a disaster for me. I was struggling with turning all weekend and we had no choice but to try a big set-up change for the race after the warm-up, but it didn’t work as expected. It was not easy to finish the race, I had no chance to push. Now we must look forward to the next race in Aragon and try to find more confidence on the bike.
